SerendipiTea wins THREE awards in the 2018 Global Tea Championship™ Spring Hot Loose Leaf competition. All three winners are certified Organic and certified Kosher hand-blended, proprietary recipes made on-site at SerendipiTea’s NY facility.

The Global Tea Championship™ is an independent competition judged by tea professionals to distinguish the highest quality and best tasting teas commercially available globally. The judging panel consisted of professional cuppers who assessed each submission through blind organoleptic analysis of the following characteristics: dry leaf; liquor color; aroma; flavor; mouth-feel; and overall harmony. The ratings of each characteristic were then used to calculate an overall numerical value on a 100-point scale, and winners were determined by rank. For a more information and a complete list of winners, click here.

SerendipiTea awards are as follows:

REMEMBER ROSEMARY won SILVER in the Blended Green Category.

WHITE GINGERED APRICOT won SILVER in the Flavored White Category.

MANDELA MASALA won BRONZE in the Blended Rooibos Category.
